If you ever had any doubt that Game Of Thrones‘ Brienne of Tarth, aka Gwendoline Christie, couldn’t pull off an Old Hollywood red carpet outfit and look absolutely stunning, this is all the proof you need. (However, we can’t forget about that sexy Love video.) Gwendoline attended the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards and brought some major old school glamour to the red carpet.
Gwendoline wore a vibrant red Giles gown, which definitely didn’t blend in with the red carpet. The dress had a Marilyn Monroe vibe to it, thanks to the plunging halter neckline. It was as if her iconic white Seven Year Itch dress was redone in red satin and updated for a fancy red carpet. Gwendoline accessorized the look with a statement purple cocktail ring that is sure to cost a zillion dollars. (Look at the size of it!)
She opted for retro hair and makeup to complement the dress. Gwendoline’s short blonde hair was styled in soft Marcel waves. For her makeup, she chose a slick of eyeliner and a statement red lip. She finished things off with a matching red manicure.
Overall, the look is stunning. Gwendoline is able to carry off almost any dramatic silhouette because of her height, (she’s 6’3″), but this look shows the naysayers that she can look just as feminine and delicate as anyone else. Being tall definitely doesn’t make you less girly than anyone else, but when we’re used to seeing Gwendoline on Game Of Thrones in armor, looking oh-so-serious, so some people can forget how she likes to embrace her femininity. Gwendoline is beautiful, powerful, feminine, and fun, and this look captures it all.
